Good Morning Everybody!


The beginning of a new/old ‘shabby chic’ flag for my fence. This lath came from an old trellis that I disassembled, Arizona weathered, perfect. This one will look a bit 3D when I’m done. I’ve probably made a half dozed of these and sold every one of them over more fancy wooden flags. I even sold the one from my old fence.

It’ll 29×19 … 13 slats for 13 stripes and a partial star field to bring it into scale. After the paint and shading, I’ll put a couple coats of AV resistant and waterproof spar varnish on it so it can be mounted outside.

Golf will be on and I’ve got a tv in the shop, so it’s fun and I’m not wasting time. Good Friday work. Finished photos later.


Here’s something to listen to:

The Water Is Wide

(just click on the title)



My Black Hills office facing a forest where the Buffalo and Deer wander by as I’m writing. Laptop, coffee, U of A koozie with diet dew, and noise cancelling headphones. Sometimes I’ll just sit for an hour before I ever type a word, just staring at the trees and wildlife.

These are rescues that Carrie Fischer takes in. A couple are Huskie/Wolf cross. I think at one time she had over 10. I had to be introduced to each one in order of hierarchy starting with the Alpha. They are a pack and certain things have to be done according to THEIR protocol. You just don’t take chances. Once you are accepted, they each have a personality, will require a certain amount of attention or keep their eye on you. When I leave their home, I miss them. She’s got a patch of crosses where great beasts ended their good life. rdd


I love this stuff, and I love life. … Last summer, I got to ride in the back of a rolling lumberjacks pickup surrounded by RAGING Buffalo! Photos to follow … one of these days.

Have a nice day!

Oh ya, here’s
